This is always a red herring. Since the first packet for a connection is to get the IP for a name, a DNS error almost always indicates a connection problem and not a DNS problem.
You can use a ping tool and just use the ip 126.96.36.199, which is googles dns but also responds to ping. If it doesn't work, it is not a DNS issue but a connection issue.

log into your router and set your DNS to 188.8.131.52
DNS is domain name system and serves as the phonebook for the internet. Without it, you go nowhere unless you know the IP address.You can open a command line (Windows key R and cmd) and type ping 184.108.40.206 and that will work. What won't work is ping google.com. When the DNS server it working, that gets translated into an IP address like 220.127.116.11. Ping 18.104.22.168 will also work even though it is one of the addresses for google.com. You can also go to 22.214.171.124 on your brower and get a google search page.

Does you wireless work with other devices? Do you have wired devices and do they work? Do you have a dynamic public IP address from your ISP or static? If it is dynamic is the router configured to obtain its DNS automatically or is it set to static with an incorrect DNS I P address? Need a lot more questions answered before anyone can help.

On your computer, set the router's IP address in the box for the DNS server address.

DNS error means you lost internet connection completely and I think you need to pay your wifi
